Balancing Digitising the NHS and Repelling IT Attacks
NHS 2020 Case Study:
Actionable Incidents Reduced From 10,000 to 3 Per Day
The NHS accounts for more than half of all data security breaches in the UK, according to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
3 of the key data security challenges for digitising all patient records and making the NHS paperless by 2020 are:
- Healthcare data fetches higher prices, as much as 60 times that of stolen credit card data, ensuring it remains a hot target for hackers.
- A growing number of connected instruments and life support systems means there are countless endpoints in any single hospital, increasing the potential for intrusion.
- Cost: With budgets under severe pressure, how do hospitals fund all necessary cyber security measures to avoid data breach?
This latest case study details how security temporarily took a backseat whilst a major US hospital undertook a significant network refresh, resulting in 10,000 malicious logon attempts each day. Initially the extent of these attacks went unnoticed and overall network performance inevitably suffered.
